According to the « Trees of Knowledge » handbook by Geoffrey A. Ritchie, forest regions of the Maritime Provinces, known as the Acadian Forest, consist of a unique mix of deciduous and coniferous trees. Each species of indigenous tree holds its own specific uses and values. Trees that have grown in the Acadian Forest have adapted well to diverse amplitudes of humidity, soils, climat and relief.

A tree is defined as a woody perennial plant which can attain 4,5 meters in height. The present list enumerates 25 native tree species found in the Cocagne Watershed area. Shrubs are not included.

On May 1st 1987, the balsam fir (Abies balsamea) was declared the official emblem of New Brunswick. You can find it frequently throughout the Cocagne Watershed.
